I had the awesome opportunity to travel to the south of France a little over a week ago with a group of students from the school I will be attending second semester (January-April). The school, "ISTEC," offers a masters in marketing and event planning, and I will be focusing on that second semester before getting my internship.
Anyway, long story short, we went to Cannes, Nice and the Cote d'Azur to visit various events, meet with event planners and get a peek at some marketing strategy first-hand at the week long "Duty Free" expo. I got to see former German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder speak at the conference and it was fun to be back in the political mindset for a moment. He was VERY political in his answers to questions and talked about his staff....kind of funny.
I just had to share some of the awesome photos from the scenery that I saw....beautiful! It was so nice to be back by the coast again- I didn't realize how much I missed it!
